Bhava Birth Education Course

Course Description

Bhava Birth is a comprehensive childbirth education course that also happens to have incredible relevance for life. The skills and insights you learn here will benefit you long after your baby is born and will set a tone for empowered parenthood. Bhava Birth fully endorses the truth that beautiful, sacred, and empowered birth happens in every setting with every kind of intervention. Whether you're choosing to birth out of hospital, with an epidural, or by cesarean, we honor you and are committed to helping you navigate and create an empowering birth experience. Bhava Birth will teach you how to ensure that interventions happen FOR you, not TO you while also fostering a healthy mindset of non-attachment to specific outcomes. You will finish this course with the ability to trust the natural unfolding of your unique birth and prevent the trauma of unmet expectations. You can't control birth, only your response to it.

You will learn a wide variety of yogic breathing, mindfulness, and meditation practices that can be practiced and used for coping during labor. Along with those effective tools, you will dive deep into the philosophical realm, exploring birth through an ancient and illuminating yogic lens. This course is comprehensive, covering everything from prenatal ritual, anatomy, birth preferences, hands-on partner support, emotional processing tools, and postpartum support planning.

This yoga and meditation-based course was created by Stephanie Sorensen, CD, CBE, CYT, to fill in the gap in modern childbirth education. It represents thousands of hours of training and research in the practices of childbirth, meditation, and yoga. You don't have to "do" or be "good" at yoga to benefit, because yoga is simply a lens through which we view childbirth in a more expansive, transformative way. Bhava Birth combines and adapts all the best known methods of childbirth preparation, including Lamaze, Bradley, and Hypnobabies (which were derived from yogic concepts). It is also influenced by: Syl Carson (Bodhi Yoga), Bruce Newman (Calm Birth), Pam England (Birthing From Within), Gurmukh (Khalsa Way), Rebecca Dekker (Evidence Based Birth), and Frederick Leboyer's works. Instead of having to read dozens of birth books, the Bhava Birth manual compiles it all into one!

Whatever ends up being your birth experience, it's the perfect opportunity for transformation. Let us give you the childbirth tools you need to become the very best version of YOU.
